I bought my MH knowing that it was very spartan to say the least. But I enjoy tricking things up and have many projects planned. One of the first things I want to do in, a remodel type of activity, is to put Venetian type blinds in the windows with decorative valances. Has anyone out there done this task? How did you do it and any problems our things I should look out for? Any help would be appreciated.

I've put up lots of mini-blinds, wood slat blinds and vertical blinds. Most any big box home improvement store will cut the mini-blind of your choice to the length that you specify. Hardware is supplied with the blinds.
Your only difficulty will be in where to hang the mounting brackets.

bighatnohors thanks for your kind reply to my post. I am aware of how to get the blinds and will use pop rivets to mount them. However I understand that unless you have a valance running across the top and down both sides they will bang around and make a lot of noise if you have them down while driving. I was just wondering if anyone had built those, and how the did it with what materials and how those were mounted to the walls. Anyone with a photo of what they did would be helpful. Thanks
